Turkish plane makes emergency landing over bomb threat
A decision to land in the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa was prompted by a suspicious object on the plane, regional head of Ukrainian national police, Ruslan Forostyak, said on his Facebook page. The passenger plane belongs to a Turkish airline and was being operated by a Turkish crew.
“One of the passengers complained of feeling unwell and having an upset stomach in particular, and spent a while in the toilet,” he wrote, adding that the crew found such actions “suspicious.”
“They then thoroughly inspected the toilet and discovered a suspicious bag there,” the Ukrainian police official added.
